Why the WLF
The WLF recruits and engages women in Democratic politics. Research shows that women are less likely than men to run for public office or participate in political fundraising. The WLF works to eliminate gender disparity by encouraging women to join and support the Democratic Party because the Democratic Party is the party that fights for women. The WLF ensures that women’s voices and values continue to be represented by our Party leadership. And through your support of the DNC’s WLF we can help recruit more Democratic women to run for office throughout the nation.Support for women candidates
